Our Crazy Tuxedo and his Sweet Mom

[ Edited ]

Sharing a few pictures of our crazy Tuxedo kitty and his sweet mom.  He's as rambunctious as a toddler and always getting into things.  She's quiet, sweet and on the shy side, but wll give him a good paw clout when he annoys her. 


Picture #2:  Enjoying a cool breeze on a hot day!  Can you say, 'cat contortionist?"

 

Picture #1Mother, Penny, checking things out!

 

(Mother, Penny, wound up on our back deck about 7 years ago, pregnant, hungry, thirsty and exhausted from the hot weather.)  She had her kittens and we found good homes for them, but her one tuxedo kitty was very small, sickly and we didn't think would make it.  Were we ever wrong!  He is so smart, and sometimes thinks he's part dog.  He fetches, will play ball on the upstairs steps by dropping the ball from his mouth so it bounces down the stairs, so you can throw it back up to him again.  He plays hide and seek and loves to sit on my sons shoulder as he walks through the house.  His mom is content to stay grounded and calm.)   Our house wouldn't be complete without them.

Penny's eyes and face seem so calm and peaceful. I know they both give you happiness.

Re: Our Crazy Tuxedo and his Sweet Mom

@sophiesofers   My apologies... My little male tuxedo is named 'Grinder' because as a sweet tiny kitten he would grind his teeth when tried to eat solid food.   His mother, Penny, was named that because any shiny coins she found in the house she was fascinated with,  and she would steal them and hid them under the kitchen/rug runner.  With one paw she would lift the runner up, and with the other paw she would bat, and I mean BAT, the coin under the rug/runner like a hockey player..lol.  At any given day, you could lift the rug/runner up and find a handful of mixed coins.
